BWS 238 - Global Inequality

3 hours
Why is there an unequal standard of living among nations? Why is it that the gap between rich and poor nations continues to widen as global prosperity increases? Does globalization exacerbate or ameliorate inequality among nations? This course examines the continuing inequality among nations and the debate that globalization either exacerbates or ameliorates it. We will discuss global inequalities in income; disparities in access to basic needs such as food, shelter, water, healthcare, and education; patterns of uneven urbanization; and unequal participation of countries in the global political, economic and technological system. The relationship between global and domestic inequalities in selected countries will be explored.
